WHATEVER NEXT?

Vibrating magnetic tattoos may one day be used to alert mobile phone users to phone calls and text messages if Nokia follow up a patent application.

Describing tattooing, stamping or spraying "ferromagnetic" material onto a user's skin and then pairing it with a mobile device, it suggests a magnetic marking could be attached to either a user's arm, abdominal area, finger or fingernail with different vibrations being used to create a range of alerts to indicate a low battery, received message, received call, etc, etc.

Yuk! Mind u I am not into surgery for cosmetic reasons.

I always wonder what the health implications over the years will be.

...Ladies with saggy bodies, but pert B**bs,
...men and women with saggy skin and unreadable tattoos

....grey haired men with two toned hair where their hair transplant is.

....they say that ears continue to grow with age, can u image those with ear stretchers, how big will their ear holes be!

This is some bizarre stuff. It's scary in some ways, but totally fascinating, too!!

That's a little bit too sci/fi for me. Crazy stuff.

Extreme it is! Can't stop thinking if this is all a prelude for implanting the mark of the beast as written in the Scriptures...

Have a blessed weekend Tracy! Hello to your HD too!

I'd probably be allergic to the new stuff. My only question on the magnets is if he would have problems with blood pooling in his wrist. Yep, I think about strange things like that. :P

Crazy the way matters are moving. And soon we may also read about a study which points out to the harmfulness of this .

I would never follow suit. I always distance myself away from technology when I could and I enjoy that time just completely detached from this fast changing world of technological advancement.
